Juvenile mussels getting ready to be put in our heat ramp water bath. We're testing for survival rates and thermal tolerance.
Left: We're using infrared lamps to provide heat to a group of mussels on our seawater table. Right: Sewing mesh bags for our heat ramp mussels.
Replacing batteries and downloading data from our MusselTrackers this morning! Both plates are in the protected site.
The second set of juvenile mussel cages are out in the tide at both exposed and protected sites. Dr. Dowd had to hide behind the rocks to escape the bigger waves!
